A Long dark night outside a woodshed is a great way to describe this one. The Demons of Red Lodge was one of the first Big Finish Doctor Who CD dramas that I ever listened to in it's entirety and it was a long night indeed. I picked this group of stories since they were shorter than average and not only am I grateful that this story was not longer, this is when I came to realize "Well, it appears as if I am not going to enjoy all of these." All of these being the hundreds of stories I had collected just waiting for when I would have time to listen to all of them.

As far as the demons were concerned - they are a delicate blend of unconvincing roars which are disturbing enough that I was very glad I had headphones on. Would not of wanted anyone else in the house hearing this somewhat odd choice of entertainment for the evening. I did very much enjoy the acting of Peter Davison and Sarah Sutton and in fact Sarah played two different Nyssas which I believe was the high point of the story for me.

I have learned that there are stories so good that I would and in fact do listen to them more than once. This was just not appealing enough to me where I would consider listening it it again.

This isn't a bad concept, however it really felt like the story was trying too hard to build its sense of atmosphere. The payoff to the story felt a little simplistic. By no means was it bad and the acting was solid. Still, I felt like this was the weakest story in this release.

Liked this felt like a lifted episode from the BBC. Alien entity taking over the Earth by essentially sucking the life out of you. The Wraith spring to mind with this one the arch enemy of the settlers on StarGate Atlantis. I love Sarah interaction with her duplicate self, i was living inside the cottage the Doctor and Nyssa were in when the real malevolence of this twisted tale, in saying that both Peter and Sarah are both give a energetic performance throughout, but the story cuts short due to the nature of this release. This isn't bad but you just get the feeling it needed to be longer.

This is a spooky little story that doesn't over-extend itself. The plot is slight, and it perhaps bears comparison with some of the old annual or comic strip adventures, but at the same time, it never wears out its welcome. A nice start to the collection if not the best.
